December 10, 2008 at 9:33 pm (Announcement, Book News, Freebies) (, , , , )

So, the Kindle Store at Amazon has a bunch of books for free. And since I care, I share. Therefore, here I am, sharing. Tis the season and all that jazz.

If you got a Kindle -great! If you don’t, sorry, sucks for YOU! No, really, if you don’t have a Kindle and can’t afford one, your turn will come. Just gotta wait for Kindle people right now.

Anyway, I digress. Here are the books, click on the ones you want, click on all of them, or just read this message for the heck of it lol.

So let me just remind you, these books DO NOT STAY FREE FOREVER.

Therefore, GRAB THEM WHILE THE GRABBIN’S GOOD. I don’t want to hear whiners who waited too late and then came to me and said, “How come it’s no longer free?” My answer will simply be, “How come you waited so long to get something FREE?!?”

Now for the books, clicky clicky away people. Clicky clicky away.

Bitten by Books Review Teaser: A Witch’s Beauty

December 9, 2008 at 2:37 am (Book News, My Reviews) (, , )


A Witch’s Beauty by Joey W. Hill

5 Tombstones

“None of the other angels really knew why the Lady chose to make David an angel. He was only a child after all, a child who had seen and suffered much horror in his young life. Despite that he was made into an angel who now protects those in the world from Dark Ones and the terror and nightmares they bring with them. Even though he is but an infant in comparison to other angels who have lived for over a millennium, David still uses his connection with his own humanity to serve the Lady in a way that no other angel can…”

Bitten by Books Review Teaser: Naked On the Staircase

December 9, 2008 at 2:26 am (Book News, My Reviews) (, , )


Naked On the Staircase by Skhye Moncrief

3.5 Tombstones

“Cowboy is not a Ring Master. He has not even been fully trained by the Brotherhood. He cannot even travel through time on his own. And yet, he was sent on a mission to rescue a Druidess from the clutches of The Master who was keeping her and her link to the timeline hostage. Now all Cowboy has to do is make his way into a castle full of The Master’s men, save the Druidess (who in all likelihood is an old crone) and save the timeline without altering its course. In other words, do it all without making a scene and try to make it out alive…”

Bitten By Books Review Teaser: Defending Angels

December 1, 2008 at 4:36 am (Book News, My Reviews) (, )


Defending Angels by Mary Stanton

5 Tombstones

“Imagine this: You are new in town, ready to take on your late uncle’s law firm, and totally gung ho about it. You finally find a place to set up your temporary office. Unfortunately it is in the middle of a cemetery that has only murderers buried in it, and your landlady seems a bit eccentric but hey! At least the rent is cheap. You finally hire two intelligent assistants who seem to be relatively sane. Then voila, you receive that first call from someone (and not just any someone, mind you, but one of the biggest and meanest tycoons in the state) who wants you to represent them. The only problem is, when you immediately call him back, you find out that he’s been dead for hours. What would you think?…”
